BOSTON (CBS) – Liquor before beer, never fear? Or beer for liquor, never sicker? Sound familiar? If you’ve been following this age-old advice, a new study says you can stop. Researchers say, bottom line, if you drink too much, you’ve bought yourself a hangover. It’s not clear why we get hangovers but for years people have relied on old folk sayings. Apparently in Europe, it’s common to hear, ”Beer before wine, you’ll be fine.” To test this theory, researchers in Germany and the United Kingdom studied 90 volunteers and found that it didn’t matter if they drank beer befor...

This Study Disproves a Common Myth About Hangovers
Hangovers are virtually unavoidable for the drinking public. But despite how common they are, scientists don’t fully understand how to cure or prevent hangovers, or even what causes them. In the absence of evidence, people have come up with plenty of their own rituals, from pre-bedtime routines (chugging water) to strict rules about when to drink which type of alcohol (beer before wine). A new study, however, provides novel insights into hangovers. No matter what type of booze you drink first, it finds, your hangover will be just the same.
